Medusa

Medusa prose poem

Photo by rjhuttondfw


Some said she was very proud of her beauty
but some say serving Goddess Athena was her duty
some said she compared herself with goddesses
some said she was a simple priestess
according to some she was desired by Zeus himself
with his act she had to take a curse on herself
she wanted to be with the mighty Hercules
but the destiny was as bad as dense canopy
it is said that three jealous old women cursed her
the others say she was had by Zeus poor her
Athena Cursed her for this mishap
for some she compared herself with Athena herself
as a result she had to weep on what she had turned herself
her hair became snakes who would also see for her
her beautiful skin turned into scales no longer was like flower
it is said that who so ever looked at her eyes
would turn into stone like cold ice
isolated and alone she roamed
but finally she was killed by a hero moreover
son of Poseidon and he was Percivelle
this was the end to a beautiful women
who was once even desired by gods in the heaven

Call Me Medusa

Call Me Medusa prose poem

These sleazy intentions seem to kill more than those so-called “reported” serial orgasms. To say, -off the record- that you give me both… feels very disturbingly corrupt yet thats not why you see me blushing. can this burning betrayal flesh
